Women against feminism are basically just arguing that their individual lives are fine and they don’t care about what other women go through

PSA: Couscous is not Israeli. Israel was founded less than 70 years ago and Couscous is a few centuries older than that #foodcolonialism

"Israeli couscous" is literally a variety of grain food invented at the behest of the state of Israel in the middle of the 20th century. Traditional couscous, which has been around for a very long time is not labeled as "Israeli couscous;" that label is only for the pearl-type grain product called such because it resembles a very large couscous, which, again, is a very recent invention.

Also important to note (for the OP and others reblogging this uncritically) that not only was ptitim invented at behest of the government, it was invented in order to help feed the mass influx of immigrants from Jewish communities in the Middle East/North Africa, who were fleeing anti-Semitic persecution.  Mizrahi Jews were accustomed to rice as a staple, which they didn’t have (austerity period), so Israeli couscous was invented to resemble rice.  
So it’s not just a case of greedy Zionists gentrifying food for kicks.
